With little on his plate and nothing to lose, Reacher begins asking questions, in hopes of returning the ring to its rightful owner. Reacher discovers that there is a fencing o ...more
This is another very good entry in the Jack Reacher series. By now the formula is fairly well set, and as this book opens, Reacher is strolling through a small town in Wisconsin. Looking into the window of a pawnshop, he happens to notice in the display a class ring from West Point. Such a ring is very hard to earn and Reacher wonders why someone might pawn one.
His curiosity aroused, Reacher buys the ring and attempts to trace it back to its original owner, a task that will be much easier said t ...more
Jack Reacher. You could call him Bigfoot. You could call him The Hulk. But you could never call him Tom Cruise.
4.5 stars for the way beyond average entertainment value here. This does for Wyoming, South Dakota- the sparsely populated huge sky country down past the Colorado border, to a pure 5 plus level and just "gets" it for the locale tone. The visuals in doing a movie of this book would be cinematic heaven.
No plot survey, others have done them well in their reviews. But ALL of the women in this Midnight Line novel, and there are absolutely 4 times as many prime women characters in this one as there a ...more
The Midnight Line is all about honor. Jack Reacher comes upon a West Point ring in a pawn shop and wants to return it to it’s owner. The book is set in the wide open Midwest and Lee Child makes you feel as if you are there. The dialogue is smart and very entertaining. Terrific repertoire.
The series usually has one intelligent woman involved in Reacher’s story, but this time there are three: a wounded West Point grad, her sister, and a local detective.
I read all the Reacher books and love them a ...more
By now - the 22nd book in the series - Jack Reacher seems like an old friend. And like most old friends, he's welcome to visit my home any time he wants. Thankfully, though, he's not the real deal and I don't need to feed him; at 6 feet 5 and not far from 300 pounds, this former West Pointer wouldn't make it much beyond breakfast on what we've got in our fridge.
Speaking of West Point, the academy provides the impetus for this story. On his way to nowhere in particular from a short stretch in Haw ...more
Cue Carly Simon: Nobody does it better. Makes me feel sad for the rest.
I read and enjoy a lot of thriller books and it seems by comparison that some writers are trying way too hard with less result. Child just makes it seems so darn easy. Additional props for unexpected humorous bits. "Cowboys are the worst.. Not much I can do to them that a horse already hasn't"
Nobody does it half as good as you. Reacher, you're the best
I have been saving this one up for our holiday so I could read it in one go. Lots of moving parts to this story, and with a pretty sad side to it. Reacher never disappoints and another 5 star performance for me.
